People don’t talk about this enough.
I’m tired of the hustle culture. I’m tired of the perfect entrepreneur.
Manufactured, primped, polished, and/or completely fabricated.
The real life of an entrepreneur is straight up exhausting, overwhelming, and emotionally taxing.
Anyone who tells you otherwise is either:
a) not an entrepreneur and selling you a bag of magic beans
b) one of the few, rare, lucky individuals that succeeded beyond their wildest dreams immediately
c) completely full of shit and they know it
This shit is hard. It pushes you to your limit.
We’ve all chased the money on the street. We’ve all had to pay ourselves last. We’ve all had to put it all on the line, while others punch a card, show up, clock out, and go home to dinner.
We’re not better than them. They do something we never could. We do something they never could.
As an entrepreneur, you were blessed to see opportunity, but you were cursed to walk over broken glass to see it through.
As an entrepreneur, you were gifted the ability to work unimaginable hours and produce ungodly amounts of work, but your sanity and relationships may be the price.
This is real life. I’m 36, at the office on a Friday at 8:00pm, because that’s the price sometimes.
I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m not complaining. I’m sharing. Because too many people think this shit is easy.
